Warlock was the thirty-fourth New Adventures novel. It featured the Seventh Doctor, Ace and Bernice Summerfield. It was the second in a trilogy of linked novels; Cat's Cradle: Warhead was the first (published in 1992) and the third novel was Warchild (published in 1996).
Publisher's summary Edit
It was the ruthless pack instinct of the primeval forest. But warlock magnified it a thousand times and made it lethal.
Benny is working with an undercover cop, trying to track down its source. Ace is trapped in a horrific animal experimentation laboratory. But only the Doctor has begun to guess the terrible truth about warlock.
This disturbing sequel to Warhead moves beyond cyberpunk into a realm where reality is a question of brain chemistry and heaven or hell comes in the shape of a pill.
